My brother was diagnosed in June 2009, with Stage IV squamous cell carcinoma at the base of the tongue with lymph node involvement. Radiation oncologist recommended seeing a medical oncologist re: chemo, but my brother is reluctant. I've heard the combination of chemo and radiation is the best way to go. Any suggestions about how to get brother to reconsider and at least go to see what the medical oncologist has to say?
I just joined this site and have been encouraged with all the experiences and remedies offered by everyone. I was pretty discouraged, but now have hope.
Thanks to all.
